The Silver Bullet

2002 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
Review
This is the best car I have ever owned! Powerful, luxurious, stylish, fun, (did I mention fun?), delightful. There are not enough superlatives to describe the wonder & engineering on this car. For the acceleration & power of the car, excellent gas mileage (18 city, 21 freeway) and it's not through the break-in period (remember, this is a 8-cylinder wonder - I was only getting 18.5 mpg in a Volvo S80 T6 - there are no comparisons between the cars). Yes, the cupholders are worthless, but that is not the reason you buy a BMW. A must have if you truly appreciate well engineered cars.
Favorite Features
The grin factor. The instant acceleration. Handling. Fit & Finish is excellent.
Suggested Improvements
Premium audio system (good, but not as good as you would expect on a +$60k car with upgraded sound). Cupholders - like everyone who owns the 5 series complains.
